ABOUT THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS:
The Championships will be hosted in Trinity Beach, Cairns from 29 September - 4 October 2014.
Baseball Australia has extended the age group from Under 23 to Under 25 based on feedback and a vision to provide further opportunity for players to represent their State. Moving the Championships to September also allows this event to be open to players returning from professional and college tenures in the US.
Both Baseball Australia and Baseball Victoria view this program as an integral step in a player’s pathway of development . This age group allows players that are developed and ones that may develop at a later age an extended opportunity to be at the forefront of scouts and officials involved with the Melbourne Aces, professional baseball and US college programs and maximises opportunities for all levels of players.
Please Note: This tournament will be used to selected the Under 21 Australian Team that will participate in the World Cup in November.
Kerry Gassner will again be the Head Coach of this program, with Dean Marnell and David Clarkson as his Assistant Coaches.
